deGrom scratched from tonight’s start

After a wild 24-hours with the firing of hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant Tony Slater, Jacob deGrom will miss tonight’s start against the Cardinals.

This is due to tightness on his right side and hopefully is nothing more than precautionary measures. deGrom just won NL Pitcher of the month for April and is on route to contend for his third Cy Young award.

Reliever Miguel Castro will step in to make the start.
